Justin Moore's big country voice shines during the final choruses of 'Lettin' the Night Roll,' the second single from 'Off the Beaten Path.' His loyal fans will recognize the performance, and fans of country music will recognize the story he tells.
'Crickets' is a fine way to describe Joe Nichols' new album. The singer aims for a relax-on-the-riverbank vibe with many of the mid-tempo cuts on this project. The album begins and ends with crickets ( literally), and in between it offers a fairly level ride.
Randy Travis' 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am' is a simple collection of covers from artists that inspired him. Merle Haggard is the most represented singer, with eight cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Three of the first four are Haggard songs, with 'What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana' being the one to remember.
Lady Antebellum have found a new direction for their blend of pop-flavored harmonies. 'Compass' walks into the forest of alt-bluegrass that's quickly growing in popularity. Heavy banjo and mandolin drive a foot-stomping beat as the group sings about staying true to one's heart.
Tyler Farr's first three singles are a fair representation of his debut album 'Redneck Crazy.' There's a little pain, a little heart and a little cray-cray. The singer relies on his unique voice, but nothing about the project feels self-indulgent.
'Hope Is Just Ahead,' the new single from Billy Ray Cyrus, takes a big picture look at the world we live in while offering some consolation to those buried in a depressing news cycle. While it's not clear if the singer penned this song about any specific event, fans will no doubt recall horrible tragedies from the past 12 months every time they hear it.
'Stay' is the most important song of Florida Georgia Line's young career. The heartbreaker finds the two cocksure men bleeding and knocked down a few steps from the truck bed they confidently stood in for their first three singles. To sustain a lengthy country music career, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard need to prove they're a well-rounded duo.
Little Big Town's new single 'Sober' is a sweet love song bathed in four-part harmonies reminiscent of the group's most popular cuts from the mid '00s. After three edgier singles, the quartet lightens up.
Billy Currington adds a pinch of rock, two tablespoons of R&B and a heavy dose of soul to his new 'We Are Tonight' album. The result is a project that tastes different, but remains true to a sound he's cultivated over the last decade.
Two artists not known for their duets come together on Keith Urban's 'We Were Us.' The second single from 'Fuse' features Miranda Lambert as co-lead vocalist. It'd be woefully inaccurate to call this simply a "guest appearance," as it's her voice that opens the song.
The official 2013 Taste of Country Music Festival poster was a hot item during the first-ever event. With Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Willie Nelson and more performing, the keepsake would have been a much-coveted prize even if there were more than 300 posters printed, but there weren't.
The Taste of Country Music Festival is approaching quickly, and artists like headliners Lady Antebellum are as excited to arrive at Hunter Mountain as fans are. Enter below for a chance to win three-day passes or VIP tickets to the festival and a meet and greet with Dave, Charles and Hillary.
